Josh keeps saying he wants to start a college fund for the girls. I say no.
Everyone looks at me like I’m crazy when I say that it is not my responsibility to pay for their college education.
Mark and I feel this way. But we also get a PFD for Theo and for baby2 when…
I don’t get this? Like.. my parents set nothing aside for me and they also made too much money for me to be able to get any financial aid, so basically I had to go into massive debt. College is fucking expensive, why wouldn’t you want to help your kid a little bit, if you can?
We have been putting money away for A for a few months. It’ll be hers when she is 18, whether she decides to go to college or not.
We have opened an account for each of our girls, and they can decide if they want to use it for University or something else. I’ll just ensure they understand that if they got to Uni but don’t use that money they’ll have a debt to pay off once they start work.
Or did they drink at 18 months?
I’m sure Francis is sick of drinking water and almond milk/breast milk but juice scares me.
So. Much. Sugar.
I usually give him a sippy of my naked juice, but that’s once a day.
Violet drinks milk, water, and…
I wish Alia would drink something other than juice (very watered down sugar free squash) but no matter how hard I try she won’t. She’ll drink her bath water quite happily though. Every now and then she’ll drink hot chocolate (very milky). At 18 months old she drank breast milk as well.
Olive drinks sugar free squash (probably far too much) but won’t drink milk other than what’s leftover in her cereal bowl. Jasper drinks formula and water.
Lexi is 3.5 and drinks mainly water, a bit of milk, weak hot chocolate before bed and the occasional watered down, sugar free juice. Kenzie is 19 months and drink water, breast milk and cows milk. She will try to drink my coffee/tea/soft drink or whatever is in my cup though, the cheeky bugger!
Heating them up with a hair dryer and then wearing them around the house. How did I not know about this?! The second I put the shoes on, they were better than before. Now they are basically moulding to my feet! My wedding shoes will be the comfiest heels I own!
Most guys do not have to deal with the world of women. They’re born from us, they live around us, but for the most part, we take care of our own shit. We buy our own tampons. We deal with skeevy guys who catcall us. We deal with crappier work situations. We deal with getting told we suck at things because we have a vagina, and that we need to be prettier. […]
Then, they had daughters. […]
The girl goes to school, and you watch how she’s never called on. You hear someone insult someone else by calling them ‘a girl’, and it stings. Your little girl is awesome! She’s brave and smart and funny! Why would anyone use that as an insult? Then, you remember all the times you did it.
And then, you realize that, all along, you’ve been a part of the problem.
It’s like when a man has a daughter he suddenly wakes up and realizes, “Oh my God, boys out there are going to treat my daughter the way I used to treat girls”. That’s why men are so protective of their daughters. They know how awful boys are because they acted the same exact way. And instead of teaching your sons not to be assholes, you hide your daughters away.
And now it is D.E.D. The screen didn’t crack, but it turned blue and you can’t see anything. So no smart phone for me until mid-march. Back to my old, shitty samsung. But at least I can make calls, but no Instagram or Pinterest or Tumblr…. I may die of first world problems.

I'm also a book reviewer and I was wondering if it might be possible to get a copy of Ash in exchange for an honest review?
I don’t have any review copies of Ash to give out because Ash was published in 2009, and review copies are typically only available before a book is published. You can probably find a copy at your local library, though!
I was on Pinterest looking for a recipe for iced tea
And I now have a few questions.
Why does American English use the word quart instead of litre for four cups of liquid? Is it to do with the metric thing or whatever you call it? Whenever I use an American recipe, I have to look up so many measuments!
You can get family sized tea bags? I am guessing these are for pots of tea, so if so, why not just use loose leaf? It tastes much better. Is it not widely available?
And thirdly, most recipes that were for 2 litres/quarts had a least 1 cup of sugar in it. Is that normal?! I made my batch with half that and it is still a bit too sweet.
And fourthly, doesn’t the tea get bitter if you steep it for 15 minutes like all the recipes told me to. I only steeped mine for 5 mins.
